The Firefox script doesn't work for me ...


No, I know. Easy fix for it, though - change the includes.

The script writer is no longer active, so I'm going to move this to another location so it does work out the box but for
now read the thread or just change the includes to

Saving Start-A-Game Settings.

Postby NightWolf on Fri Sep 19, 2008 2:23 pm

Concise description:
    I have searched this forum, and have found no suggestion whatsoever that mentions this, so I figured I could ask the community about how they think of the idea of having their game setup options saved to be set to their favorite settings, so that they don't have to reset them each time.

Specifics:

    ---Creating a personal save for your settings for creating new games. e.g. always have the radio button for "Sequential Game" ticked, as opposed to "Freestyle Game".
    ---This is not nessesary, but there could possibly be a little listbox in which you could select your saved setting from, of which upon clicking automatically loads the settings referenced from that item.
    ---Since only Premium members can have unlimited games, thus may be creating many, many games at once, this could be a feature restricted to Premium members (This is debatable.)


This will improve the following aspects of the site:
    Reduce the time taken doing the tedious process of checking the same boxes for the settings each time you create a new game.

There's a greasemonkey plugin that does this, check out that forum.

I don't know where it is in the plugin forum. I cannot find it. Also, not everyone uses Firefox. I just happen to, but everyone else who doesn't loses out.

Saving Game Types

Postby karelpietertje on Sat Sep 20, 2008 1:51 pm

Hi all, this is my plan:

Concise description:
  • Because many people play some kinds of games (for instance Doodle Assassin-games) a lot, I think there should be an option to save certain game types. So when you go to "Start A Game" or "Game Finder" there are certain sets of Game Options.

Specifics:
  • so let's say you usually only to start games like this: 8 player, Doodle Earth, Assassin, Freestyle, No cards, Unlimited, Sunny, Speed. you check all those boxes, but instead of "Create" there will be a new button called "Save settings" and you click that one.
    Now there are two options: either there will be a new menu called "Saved game settings" or the list of saved game styles will be in "Start A Game"

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Nobody will have to repeat the process of clicking al the settings of the game type they love so much!

Anybody thinks this is a good plan?
KP

PS: perhaps this could be an add-on like greasemonkey and Clickable Maps? I don't know who makes those add-ons, but please do so :P!

Favourite Maps

Postby shrub on Tue Sep 23, 2008 4:54 pm

<DELETE ME>
lol
</DELETE ME>

Favourite map option :

    Specifics:
    • Being able to make a list of favourite maps, eg classic, arms race, USA
    • When on game finder, having the option to click favourite maps, and the search results will only show those maps,

    This will improve the following aspects of the site:
    • Quicker and easier to find games on maps people like
    • Would make shrub happy

    It is not a site option, but there is a userscript "Games Filter" that can do this. Link

    You can save then load your settings/maps...

    While I at this time don't have any funds to part with, I will become a premium member as soon as I can.

    That said, I REALLY WOULD like the FAVORITE game finder select feature. I didn't see this on the list of suggestions. Is it being considered??

    It is available as a Greasemonkey add-on, called Saved Searches. It's free, and found in the plugins & Add-ons sub-forrum.

    For Internet Explorer there is a Saved Searches script (there has been for months):

    Included in the post is a link to explain how to run scripts for Internet Explorer.

    Suggestion: Saved Searches in Game Finder

    Postby grunion on Fri Mar 06, 2009 1:12 pm

    Suggestion: Allow players to save frequently used searches in game finder


    Specifics:
    • Allow a player-configurable list of 4 - 5 "favorite searches" in the Game Finder screen
    • Allow players to come up with names for the saved searches

    This will improve the following aspects of the site:
    • When I go to Game Finder 90% of the time I am putting in the same search criteria, looking for games to join with my preferred criteria. Usually it is too much of a chore to multi-select a bunch of specific maps I like so when the search comes up I end up wading through many screens of games I wasn't interested in. Also for some maps I prefer different settings than for others. I'd like to create these searches just once and then save them.
    • Having a pick list of searches that I know will generate the results I want will make me a happy camper and make it tons easier to join the games I want to.

    There are some things that I feel should be part of the site, even though you can find some add on to fix it. Since this is not on Lack's To-Do list as a Reject, I would like to support this built into the site.

    If you know how to read the HTML, you can construct your own... i.e.

    "Crossmaps"
    Code: Select all
    http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?submit=Search&gs=W&pt=N&mp=96,9,92,104


    So I don't think it's a hard thing to store on the site (either in a "last 5 searches" or "repeat last search" or "save this search" at the bottom of the GF menu).

    I would support it being added to the site.

    You could create bookmarks of the above codes and use them yes. It's basically how the GM script works.

    I still think it has a place mechanically as part of the site, but like alot of things that BOB or Clickable Maps provide, you can get it outside the site.

    You get the real URL from the << button at the top right of the results page.
    You don't see all of the parameters in the address bar because this is what is called a POST query which hides the parameters in the address bar.
